INTRODUCTION The aim of the study was to assess the relation of baseline mechanical dyssynchrony with the left ventricular end-systolic volume (LVESV) decrease following cardiac resynchronization (CRT) therapy introduction. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixty consecutive patients (aged 66.3 ± 8.7 years; 57 men) with chronic heart failure (71.7% of ischaemic and(More)
Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is a crucial co-modulator of cardiovascular, nervous, digestive and excretory systems function. The pleiotropic action of atorvastatin exceeds simple 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibition and involves multiple biological mechanisms. This study assesses the influence of atorvastatin on the H2S tissue(More)
The interest in digoxin has recently increased due to the expanding knowledge regarding endogenous cardiac glycosides and a potential oncological application of this drug. Hydrogen sulfide (H(2)S), a crucial co-modulator of various physiological processes, is involved in the pathophysiology of different disorders and may be useful in the treatment of some(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to determine whether baseline right ventricular (RV) function assessed by standard echocardiography may indicate patients who will respond to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). MATERIAL AND METHODS The data of 57 patients (54 men, 95%), aged 66.4 ±8.7 years with heart failure (HF) having a CRT device implanted(More)
